4. EMBEDDED CONTENT


Sometimes we embed content (for example images or videos) from third party websites such as YouTube. As a result, when you visit a page on our Site that features such content, you may be presented with cookies from these third party websites. We do not control these cookies and cannot prevent these websites or domains from collecting information relating to your use of such content. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about that third party, its website or domain, and its use of cookies and your data. Such third parties may still gather usage information about you (e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.) and may also be able to work out who you are even if you are not logged in to their services. Read more about YouTube's privacy policy for embedded content.

These platforms may set cookies which can identify you as an individual, even when you are not logged in to their services. This means that such platforms may be collecting information about your
